    not a serious investor but

    -how will the China melt down drive US stocks. When would be the best time to open an new S&P500 type mutual fund?

    -too bad for some US based companies that do a lot of business in around China. Apple or GM so sad. Wells Fargo Bank has little investment in china, a good. What established low risk stocks might do well?

    -what online free metrics tools are available. For example i found Trade King has a nice online research section. They have lower cost trades and free tools?

    I'm not an investor either; but if China's melt down creates an opportunity to buy the entire country for a dollar, I'm in.

    It's a fake/rogue economy that the is propped up by the Chinese Government. They have suspended trade on large accounts for 6 months. That's called unfair and NOT A FREE MARKET!! #FAIL they will!!!

    Cranmer seems to think the us will not be hurt to bad.

    If you are not an active investor, don't look at China. Chinese stock market will require so much more regulatory changes and more openness before it's not a pure gamble.

    There isn't a "best time" to buy. Just buy a S&P 500 index ETF or S&P 500 index mutual fund if you are a buy and hold type of investor. They have very low management fee and they generally win over other actively managed funds.

    You can just buy it from your bank.

    At what price range?

    Of course I could just ask my bank that question, but it's so much easier to ask here cause I'm lazy and shit like that. icon_lol.gif

    Hehe, it's cool. Indexed ETF or indexed funds's price is directly linked to the index you are buying so they are changing every day with the change of the index. So the price is just what it is.

    If you really want to be "greedy" or "nickel and dimed", you can wait for some really negative news or events such as the subprime crisis a few years ago or Chinese stock market free fall couple weeks and see how much the S&P will go down and buy in when it's down ( doing that, I guess you achieve your goal of buying in a lower price). But if you are buy and hold and in the long run, it probably won't matter that much.

    I used to buy double ETF which pretty much go up and down twice as much as the index. Pretty scary but the reward could be great. Wouldn't recommend to new investors though.

    I wouldn't invest in anything in China. The Chinese heavily invest in the US. If they won't even invest in their own county, why should you?
